Merry christmas & happy new year!

I am so excited to finally share my big news with you - yeeeeee ha - 2017 is going to be the year of the cookbook!!! I am thrilled to be publishing my first book which will be due in stores around New Zealand (working on Australia and the US) near the end of next year. It really has been a long time coming, but now I finally know how I want it to be, and I can't wait to put it all together. Just as exciting for me, is that my super-talented eldest son Henry is doing the design. Cheers, and here's to you - huge thanks for coming here so often and giving me the confidence to give it a shot, and to my darling friends and family for their encouragement.

 I'll see you back here in a few weeks, in the meantime, travel safely, make the most of shared times with friends and family and don't forget to have a good old fossick around the blog for holiday cooking inspo...

...alrighty then, that's it from me - 2017? Bring it on!!!
